lawrence is tracking these developments. he is joining us from los angeles. chris? >> reporter: frederica about a month ago, an iraqi citizen came forward and told the u.s. military about the possible location of captain speicher's grave. and it was in an area very close to where the military had found pieces of his shattered airplane way back in 1993. now the marines went to that part of the desert where another iraqi citizen told them he remembered an american jet crashing and told them he was there when the bedouins found captain speicher's body near the crash site and buried him there. so the u.s. military went out to that site and it took several days over the past week, but they did find captain speicher's remains. they found bone fragments, skeletal fragments, multiple skeletal flagments, actually. and then those were flown to dover air force base where the military medical examiner was able to match his jaw bone with captain speicher's accidental records and that's how they confirmed his positive identification. the family spokesman tells us just a few minutes ago that they are ex
that democrats are using that as an excuse but maybe republicans are giving them one to push forward without them. >> ed henry, if this is true and seriously under consideration it seems a far cry from what we were hearing over the weekend from the white house, from kathleen sebelius, from the president himself, from robert gibbs talking about the public option being one of several things and the key thing is competition and choice. to go from that to suddenly moving forward ramming this thing through it seems like all day today they have been saying nothing is changing. it seems like a lot has changed. >> you are right. that is why they are not pulling the trigger tonight on this. over the weekend it was about the president showing flexibility saturday night on the town hall. maybe there won't be a public option. kathleen sebelius leaving the door open to no public option. she didn't close the door either. that was about trying to bring in kent conrad, a conservative democrat like ben nelson in the senate, show flexibility. if they ram this through with this procedural motion that will close tha
